A new procedure, based on the laser-induced plasma spectroscopy (LIPS) technique, is proposed for calibration-free quantitative elemental analysis of materials. The method here presented, based on an algorithm developed and patented by IFAM-CNR, allows the matrix effects to be overcome, yielding precise and accurate quantitative results on elemental composition of materials without use of calibration curves. Some applications of the method are illustrated, for quantitative analysis of the composition of metallic alloys and quantitative determination of the composition of the atmosphere.
